All,

Netanyahu had the nerve to say the US was family. Pffft. You don't disrespect or use your family members.

The words of the miserable sociopath...

In the video, which is from 2001, Netanyahu -- who reportedly did not know his speech was being recorded -- speaks frankly in Hebrew about relations with the Clinton White House and the peace process.

As noted in Haaretz, Netanyahu seems to boast of his knowledge of the US by saying, "I know what America is. America is a thing you can move very easily, move it in the right direction. They won't get in their way."


He also boasts of manipulating the U.S. in the ongoing peace process, as the Washington Post points out:

"They asked me before the election if I'd honor [the Oslo accords]," he said. "I said I would, but ... I'm going to interpret the accords in such a way that would allow me to put an end to this galloping forward to the '67 borders. How did we do it? Nobody said what defined military zones were. Defined military zones are security zones; as far as I'm concerned, the entire Jordan Valley is a defined military zone. Go argue."

"Netanyahu had the nerve to say the US was family."

I heard that too, and bristled.

He has delusions of grandeur, thinking he's head of state (he's not) and that his 745,000 votes out of 5.6 million registered voters places him on the same footing as a president AND Head of State that got 70 million votes out of 146 million registered voters.

His wife was quoted in the last week saying that she's sure if Netanyahu had been born in the US, he would be president (with the tacit 'and not this interloper schwartze').

He says Iran is devouring country after country in the Middle East, yet he can't name one country Iran has conquered and occupied. What a blatant liar and nobody in the media will call him on it.

Fox's next talking point will be Netenyahu loves America more than Obama.

Imagine

"Gustav Jahoda catalogued how [white] Europeans since the time of the ancient Greeks viewed [different cultures] as [being nonhumans and] lacking a mind in one of two ways: either lacking self-control and emotions, like an animal, or lacking reason and intellect, like a child. So foreign in appearance, language, and manner, "they" did not simply become 'other' people, they became LESSER people. More specifically, they were seen as having /lesser minds/, diminished capacities to either reason or feel" [thus allowing wars and genocides against them]. Mindwise, by Epley
